In response to the storm of right-wing media demagoguery raging against Syrian refugees, coming especially from Fox News, there was also a truly eloquent rebuttal from none other than Fox News’ own anchorman: Shepard Smith.

Confronted with those who want to change our way of life, will we abandon our freedoms, and the rights granted to us by the Creator?

We must fight for what we believe in, and who we are — guard our freedoms faithfully, for the generations to follow. And we must not let the rhetoric of potential and political extremists among us, lead us to self-destruction.”

When NBC News’ Tom Winter described James’ investigation in a Twitter thread, Haberman responded:

President Joe Biden

Washington (AFP) - Joe Biden sought to reset his presidency in a marathon press conference Wednesday, vowing to reconnect with voters in his second year and touting what he said were his unprecedented successes.

"Can you think of any other president that's done as much in one year?" Biden asked, ticking off the epic struggle against Covid-19 and trillions of dollars in government funding to save the US economy from pandemic fallout.
